Pottery Sale takes place Wednesday, April 17


West Virginia University’s School of Art and Design will hold its semi-annual pottery sale on Wednesday, April 17 from 9 a.m. to 6p.m. in the Canady Creative Arts Center lobby.

The event is an opportunity to own unique items, all handmade by students and faculty of the Ceramics program. In previous years, the sale was on Friday and Saturday, but this year it is mid-week.

Ceramics faculty member Robert “Boomer” Moore said the sale is an excellent opportunity to support the ceramic arts while finding pieces to cherish for decades.

“Community members have supported the WVU Ceramics sale for many years,” Moore said. “It is a wonderful chance for the community to get quality utilitarian pieces and help support students at the same time.”

Customers can expect a large variety of options, including berry bowls, mixing bowls, and platters. The production methods class created the WVU Production Pottery available, and no two pieces are exactly alike.

“Each piece at our sale has had as many as six students that have helped in the process of producing it. They are unique compared to mass production line pieces,” said Moore.

All proceeds from the sale go towards scholarships, student activities, and the China Ceramics program – which takes students overseas to study with some of the most renowned ceramic artists.
